Friday, finally! As usual I’ve got high hopes for all the things I will accomplish over the weekend – we’ll see how focused I really am and how much ends up getting done. But before we jump into the weekend I want to take a minute to share this:
Our Christmas Cactus has always given us a flower a year, but never more than one…until this year. It’s been very generous and we’re so happy to see it so healthy and happy!
I also thought I’d share something I did awhile ago but was reminded of recently when the Pottery Barn Kids catalog arrived the other day and I saw this:
This is my kind of “I could make that” item because it doesn’t require many supplies or a great deal of time. Plus they would make great gifts.
I, for instance, made this for my sister for her birthday last year:
I painted a wooden plaque from Michaels, used a sheet of patterned scrap-booking paper and printed the silhouette out from the computer onto heavyweight matte paper. I used modge-podge to put it all together and attached a coordinating ribbon on the back. Because I choose a fancy frame and wanted to get the shape just right I scanned the plaque into the computer and made a template to follow when cutting out the patterned paper.
I did a quick test first and I kept that one for myself:
If this inspires you to make one please send me a picture, I’d love to see!
Have a nice weekend…
